Coeliac Australia

Youth Advisory Committee

Are you a young Australian with coeliac disease who wants to make a difference?
The YAC(k) is here to unite and empower individuals like you to contribute to the work of Coeliac Australia.

As a member of the Coeliac Australia YAC(k), you will have the opportunity to help shape the mission and activities of the group. Our goal is to build a diverse committee of passionate young people who are dedicated to enhancing the lives of their fellow Australians with coeliac disease.

By joining the YAC(k), you will impact the next generation living with coeliac disease, connect with like-minded individuals, build new friendships, and learn new skills.

The YAC(k) is integral to Coeliac Australia, informing how the organisation communicates with young people about coeliac disease. The committee will meet quarterly to discuss and plan our initiatives.

As a member of the YAC(k), you will have the opportunity to:
  • Advise Coeliac Australia on how to raise awareness and enhance the lives of young people with coeliac disease

  • Initiate and support local awareness and fundraising activities

  • Provide advice and ideas about how Coeliac Australia can better communicate with younger demographics

  • Act as brand ambassadors and youth spokespersons to support the work of Coeliac Australia in Gluten-free Living Magazine/Hub and on social media

  • Brainstorm ways to add value to young members

Join us today and be a part of a community that is making a real difference for young Australians with coeliac disease
